NYC09: Forbidden Planet

Forbidden Planet
Broadway and 13th
New York City

Forbidden Planet is a comic book lovers dream. It offers an assortment of current issues, ranging from the top of the line super heroes you'd come to expect like Spider-man, Batman, and Superman. Lesser titles such as Night of the Living Dead, and Ex Machina are also for sale there. And if independent lines, such as small press and homebrew comics are more up your alley, well then there is an entire shelf for you too.

Action figures more to your liking? All the hottest toys can be found here: Aliens vs. Predator, Marvel Comics and DC Comics toys, and even such oddities as William Shakespeare, and Horror Movie Victim #3. Catching my eye, was the warning sign man. Complete with yellow triangle backdrop, this black stickman can be posed to create whatever unique warning label you desire.

The upper level of the store features manga and art books, if Japanese culture is what you're after. Featuring most of the top titles, and an assortment of lesser known, this store does its best to provide for all clientèle. They even have a display case full of capsule toys and titillating statues.

Whatever your geeky pleasure, this is the place for you in New York City.
